Awesome Human Nests by Jayson Fann

Using tree branches harvested from local forests, artist Jayson Fann of the Spirit Garden creates incredible nests for humans! After he carefully chooses and cuts branches from trees, he removes the leaves and then begins arranging them. As he says on his website, “The process consists of fitting the puzzle of branches into a flowing form that integrates structural integrity with artistic flow. I use tension by bending the wood and counter sunk screws that are virtually invisible to ensure a strong structure.”

In Big Sur, California you can actually rent a human-sized nest to sleep in. The Treebones Resort has one that sits on a little clifftop. Reachable by ladder, the whimsical nest boasts amazing views of the Pacific Ocean you can experience right from your bed.
